Trauma Journalism

The tragic murder of journalist James Foley may result in the misconception that freelancers like him put themselves in harm's way because they're adrenaline junkies. The vast majority of these correspondents and photographers work in dangerous conditions to bear witness to traumatic events so audiences can learn what is happening in conflict zones worldwide. They are not risking their lives for thrills or adventure. These rare individuals believe that as journalists they have a responsibility to put themselves at risk so others will be informed and enlightened.
